Post-pandemic life has led countless people around the world to re-evaluate their work-life balance.
And for many Canadians, that’s meant ditching their traditional 9-to-5 job and opening their own business.
The reasons are many, from enjoying the superior flexibility of self-employment to the financial and personal growth that comes from ownership.
You could build your own business from scratch, of course. But that carries an exceptional number of risks, including enormous start-up costs, establishing infrastructure for everything from bookkeeping to inventory, and the huge challenge of creating brand awareness in an increasingly crowded marketplace.
That’s why franchising is such an attractive alternative.
Franchising combines the benefits of ownership with the proven business model, finely tuned operating procedures, and name recognition of an established brand.
Today, M&M Food Market is looking for new Franchise Partners who are passionate about the business and their local community and are ready to grow with a proven brand.
Whether you want to own your own business, switch careers or diversify your investment portfolio, now is the time to consider the benefits of an M&M Food Market franchise.
A strong and stable franchise opportunity
M&M Food Market products are sold in nearly 3,000 locations across Canada. Since the first store opened in 1980, M&M Food Market has evolved to adapt to economic downturns, changing consumer tastes, and an increasingly competitive retail environment to emerge as Canada’s largest frozen-food retailer. This meant that M&M Food Market was well-positioned to respond to the sudden and rapid impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. As an essential service, M&M Food Market remained open and supported local communities across Canada by providing a small, clean, safe environment in which customers could shop. It also provided an alternative to restaurants when Canadians began cooking more meals at home and looking for other ways to celebrate with family and friends.
Innovating to reflect their customers’ needs
M&M Food Market is a stable as well as dynamic franchise, proven through accelerated investments in key strategic initiatives. A refreshing, modern store design makes it easier for customers to browse, discover new products and receive personalized customer service from highly trained Meal Advisors.
Innovation is at the heart of the M&M Food Market business. The newly designed and fully eCommerce-enabled M&M website makes ordering online more convenient than ever, with the option of in-store or curbside pick-up as well as delivery in most communities. Additionally, the M&M Food Market Rewards program extends personalized offers to customers based on their shopping behaviour and meal preferences, plus special flyer pricing.
More reasons why so many Canadians love M&M Food Market: The newly enhanced website provides the option for customers to input dietary and other restrictions, as well as discover new products through tailored recommendations. Plus, M&M Food Market is the only national food retailer in Canada with absolutely no artificial colours, flavors, and sweeteners in any of its 500-plus products.
Supporting franchise partners every step of the way
M&M Food Market makes it easy to achieve success by providing the tools, training, and support you need.
All Franchise Partners go through comprehensive classroom and in-store training prior to operating their own location. Cloud-based daily training programs, operational manuals and guidelines, ongoing development opportunities, and regular calls with local Area Managers ensure Franchise Partners always have a place to turn for help.
M&M Food Market has also taken significant steps to minimize the impact of supply chain and labour market disruptions. While these challenges have affected every business to some degree, M&M Food Market has been able to keep products on the shelves and available to customers by working closely with suppliers and managing frozen inventory to reduce the risk of shortages.
